Every time I've heard someone play an Alembic, it had clank. Stanley Clarke is a good example of this, every time he plucks you can hear it smack against a fret. Now obviously clanks are a result of low gauge strings, low action, and hard plucking, but how come no one ever plays it without? Does it sound really bad without it or something, or does the design facilitate it? Any got some sound clips of them playing by the bridge without any fret smackage?
